Wave Horizon 2 Review // by Chris White

As a runner and Mizuno wearer I need a bit of support with my shoes as I do pronate a bit. The Wave Catalyst, Wave Inspire and Wave Horizon are all in that range, with the Wave Horizon being the most cushioned of them. I have enjoyed swapping shoes and changing things up through the range throughout this year of marathon running. When I heard that Mizuno were releasing a Horizon 2, I was intrigued…

Stepping UP // by Coach Pat Carroll

My best initial advice to anyone considering stepping up in distance is to feel like you’re excited about the challenge. Locking in a Marathon simply because it’s on your bucket list may result in your running becoming a chore. Ideally you’ll prepare for a Marathon because you have a genuine passion for running long distance. If you find 3hr/4hr training runs daunting/boring – it’s best you stay with Half Marathons and below. I have always…

TRANSFORM YOUR RUN THROUGH STRENGTH // BY DAVID LIPMAN

Hopefully strength training in endurance sport is not a foreign concept to you. There has been significant research into strength training for triathletes and runners of all distances in recent times and it is overwhelmingly positive.

Strength training has some more traditionally…

BUT if I am truly honest, I preferred the earlier models with their more minimalist design. As the model progressed it moved more towards a traditional…
